Activating MxSuite Software
There are two kinds of MxSuite licenses:
•Fixed License Tokens (also known as node-locked tokens) - These are installed on your own computer to allow you to run MxSuite applications on just your computer.
•Floating License Tokens - These are installed on a server and allow anyone with access to the server to run MxSuite applications.
For more information, see How Licenses Work.
Choose the type that you were issued:
Fixed (local) licenses are tied to a particular computer. That computer hosts the token pool and the applications.
1.Be sure MxServe and MxSuite are both installed on your computer.
Note: If the necessary application is not installed, see Installing the MxSuite.
Note: MxServe is required to connect to localhost. If MxServe is not installed, see Installing the MxSuite.
4.By default, the connection port Id is 1234. See the section on Changing the Port on the Token Host if needed.
5.Click the Refresh button if necessary. The Status column should indicate a successful connection.
If the server does not connect, see Troubleshooting Licenses.
6.Select the License Update tab.
7.Click the Generate and Copy buttons, then send the generated Site Code to email@example.com
Note: Site Codes expire 14 days after they are generated.
The Token Pool is updated with the credited tokens.
10.Open MxTransIt and repeat steps 2 through 5, then click OK.
•Site Codes may be used only one time. Each new license requires a new Site Code.
•Token Keys must be validated on the same PC that generated the Site Code.
•If the new license replaces a previous license, it may be necessary to use the Kill License button before receiving the new License Key. This must be done on the system that hosts the Token Pool.
•If there are problems with the license system, MxSuite support may instruct you to use the Clean button. This will require a new License Key from Danlaw.
There are two steps required to install and use a floating license:
1.Create one or more token pools. (This step is typically performed by the IT department.) Use this procedure:
2.Choose which token pools each user can access. You do this the first time you open each MxSuite application. Use this procedure:
